How can we improve WCF Data Services?

Retrieve DbContext in EntityFrameworkDataService

There doesn't seem to be an obvious way to get the underlying `DbContext` object from the `EntityFrameworkDataService` API for Entity Framework 6 in the new out-of-band WCF Data Services Entity Framework provider package [0].

There is at least one comment in the announcement article and one thread [1] on the forums about this, so I guess a little note to clarify this (for example on the blog) would be greatly appreciated.

Note: Making the `DbContext` accessible via the `CurrentDataSource` property (as it was before) would be very nice, as not doing so breaks a lot of code for no obvious gain.
